Psalm 15 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

(A psalm by David.)

Who May Worship the LORD?
1Who may stay in God’s temple

 

or live on the holy mountain

 

of the LORD?

 

2Only those who obey God

 

and do as they should.

 

They speak the truth

 

3and don’t spread gossip;

 

they treat others fairly

 

and don’t say cruel things.

 

4They hate worthless people,

 

but show respect for all

 

who worship the LORD.

 

And they keep their promises,

 

no matter what the cost.

 

5They lend their money

 

without charging interest,

 

and they don’t take bribes

 

to hurt the innocent.

 

Those who do these things

 

will always stand firm.

 

 

 

Psalm 15 was composed for those whom wished to have admission to God in his Temple in Jerusalem. However, these days we all can have access to God through Jesus anywhere – in church, in our homes, anywhere.

However, if we try to live a blameless life we will be able to worship God better. No one can be perfect – only Jesus was perfect. We have to confess our sins and ask for forgiveness. We can do this by being obedient towards God, being truthful, not spreading gossip (which has a nasty way of hurting other people). Being fair, kind and respectful to other Christians. Being trustworthy, honest and if we are like that we will be blessed. These acts of worship demonstrate our fellowship with God and our progress in becoming more like Jesus.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the lovely choice in Psalms. Verse 3 is especially thought provoking for me (unfortunately). May we be salt and light whereever we’re planted.

    On another note, I finally took the plunge and started a blog. Come see me when you get a chance. Happy Sunday. 🙂

    I had similar thoughts — that in many ways we can’t “live up to” this list, but thank God He forgives when we confess our sins to Him.
